Recipe Mashed Potatoes with Caramelized Onions
I could easily eat a bowl of this caramelized onion and potato mash for dinner only but if you’re looking for a good match: sausages work extremely well here. Drizzle the potatoes with the browned bits and butter you cooked them in. Hmmmm, dig in…

- 1 ½ lbs potatoes for mash (675 g)
- 1 large onion
- 2 large garlic cloves
- 3 tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- ¼ cup whole milk (60 ml), warm
- Peel the potatoes and chop them up into small pieces. Fill a high pan with water and add a good dash of salt to it. Then place the pan over high heat and add the chopped potatoes to the water.
- Cook the potatoes for about 20 minutes or until tender. In the meantime peel and slice the yellow onion and garlic cloves. Add them to a non-stick pan together with a tablespoon of the butter. Season with a little pepper and salt.
- Place the pan over medium-high heat and cook the onion for 15 to 20 minutes until soft and golden brown. Then turn the heat a little lower if necessary. Keep an eye on it so the onion doesn't burn. Add a drop of water if necessary. Stir regularly. Pour in the balsamic vinegar in the end. Add extra pepper or salt to taste if necessary.
- Cook for another 2 minutes and then take the onions off the heat. Drain the cooked potatoes well and add them back to the pan. Then season with a generous pinch of pepper and salt.
- Mash the potatoes roughly using a fork. Add the warm milk.
- Then add the rest of the butter as well.
- Stir well. Add the browned balsamic onions to the potatoes.
- Stir well again. Check the seasoning and add extra pepper or salt to taste if necessary. Transfer the mashed potatoes to a warm and large dish and serve hot.
